Inside AMD's New Ultimate Gaming Processor: Ryzen 7 5800X3D Breakdown and Benchmarks

This discussion has a more recent version.

Written by Sean Mekinda

Announced back at CES 2022, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is AMD's newest processor, and the "Ultimate Gaming Processor" thanks to AMD's brand-new 3D V-Cache Technology.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is AMD's first chip to include their 3D V-Cache, which enables the L3 cache to be stacked vertically, drastically increasing cache sizes without taking up additional space. The result is an average 5% increase in speeds for 1080p gaming.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Spec Breakdown:

  • Socket: AM4
  • 8 Cores
  • 16 threads
  • Base clock frequency of 3.4GHz
  • Max boost frequency of 4.5GHz
  • 100MB total cache
  • PCIe 4.0 support
  • DDR4 support
  • CPU cooling is not included

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Benchmarks:


Cinebench tests processors for responsiveness and power in both intensive tasks (multi-core) and general daily usage tasks (single-core). The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D put up some serious numbers, well worthy of becoming AMD's new flagship processor.


3DMark's CPU Profile tests single- and multi-thread performance. Again, we see incredibly solid numbers, really showcasing that the new 3D V-Cache is doing a lot to boost the Ryzen 7 5800X3D's power.

3DMark Time Spy Stress Test:

3DMark's Time Spy stress test puts every element of the computer under heavy load and checks how well it can maintain a constant frame rate. And while this test isn't just about the CPU, it does require a strong processor to deliver a 98.4% stability rating.


PassMark's CPU Mark test puts the processor through a number of different tests, including maths, physics, and compressions tests. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D scored a whopping 22,843.5, pushing close to workstation-level processing.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is available now at your local Micro Center! And if you're looking for suggestions, check out our AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Build Guide!
